Abstract : A method was developed for solving transient moving point source problems for infinite and semi-infinite elastic media. The method makes use of integral transform techniques and Cagniard's method of inversion. Emphasis was placed on the study of primary wave and surface wave radiation from distributed sources used in exploration seismology.
